When Ryan, 36, stepped into his role of assisting PepsiCo employees with making sound financial decisions, the company-provided programs at the time focused largely on retirement planning. Ryan worked tirelessly to change this through his leadership in the Healthy Money program.

Healthy Money aims to help employees and their families take control of their personal finances through a variety of available educational opportunities, such as one-on-one counseling, workshops/webinars, personalized financial need assessments and more.
